        People in general have limited experience of the city, especially those who just go there for vacation, because they tend to stay in the area that their family lives in and socialize and move about in a limited radius.

        I was lucky in a sense that when i moved to karachi the large scale gunda gardee had not become a problem, so I was pretty free to roam around. Its a diff world out there.

        There are plenty of things we takle for granted but in the saddar tower area, there is some magnificent old architecture.

        most people are familiar with the beaches, which are under developed, but are still a lot of fun. you can even rent a boat with a crew and go crabbing.

        Other places to visit are the museum that is in quaid e azam's place of residence, and the mazzar-e-quaid.

        just outside karachi you will find areas like panj moori, khadayji falls, and a few lakes. I have not been to any of these places since 1988, they were not very developed in terms of tourist services but were a lot of fun anyways.
        The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.

            KARACHI :love:

            Its My Second Most Fav City in Pakistan ... The Most Precious Gift for KARACHI is... THE GREAT SEA.. although its not clean at Porst area and at the Beaches BUT Still its not bad if U go to a deep sea or to OUT of City Beaches.
            The Breez is always there. When ever I used to get tired, I used to go to Sea View and Just Looking to the Tides and Enjoy the Breez and Felt Fresh.
            Karachi Is Called MINI PAKISTAN bcoz af the presence of the ppl from all the cities of PAKISTAN.

            Very GOOD CINEMAS in Karachi with good sound Effect. One can Enjoy Big movies in Karachi Cinemas.

            OYSTER ROCKS.... Just 15 to 20 Min away in a BOAT. An outstanding place to visit.

            NIHARI One can have a very Good Nihari in Karachi. Lots of [/b]Icecream Flavours[/b] Bcoz of the availibility of all sort fo Fruits in Khi.

            There is s NAVAL Island Called. HIMALYA... The Beach Is Very Beautiful there .. and.. there One can Sea High Tides as well :-)

            Very Good and Moderen Shopping Malls ... Like PARK TOWERS and FORUM etc ... simply gr8

                        CA, I spent nearly 3 weeks in Karachi and I didn't see Mohatta Palace or Makli Graveyard or Quaid's House. I wish you posted these pics when I opened my thread on where I should visit in Karachi. I think I need to go back again.

                            Actually, my timing in Karachi was wrong. We were there at the beginning of Ramadan. Everything was pretty much closed including the shops that would open at 12:00 p.m. and close for the day at Asr to prepare for Iftaari and tarabiyan. Plus, everybody was fasting. Only towards the end of my stay did things start opening. It was like that for the first 10-15 days. Oh well.

                            Anyway, Pakistani Abroad, I wasn't seriously blaming CA.
